    3 Until such time as there is a release, the best way of getting MADWifi is to get it out of the MADWifi Subversion Repository
     3There are several ways to get your copy of MadWifi. In order to be on the bleeding edge of the development you should use Subversion to get madwifi-ng. We offer tarballs of the latest revisions for those of you that don't want to mess with Subversion. And if you don't want to touch a compiler at all you can get precompiled packages for the distribution you're using

    5 To download MADWifi via subversion, change directory to somewhere you would like to keep the sources, and type: 
     5== Downloading via Subversion == 
    66 
    7 {{{svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/trunk madwifi-ng}}} 
     7There are currently two main branches that you might be interested in. Change to a location where you want to keep the sources. Then, depending on which of the branches you want to use, type: 
    88 
    9 ...which will download the latest sources to a directory called madwifi-ng. To update, simply change directory to madwifi-ng and execute: 
     9 * for the "new code" (also known as "madwifi-ng"): 
     10{{{ 
     11svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/trunk madwifi-ng 
     12}}} 
    1013 
    11 {{{svn update}}} 
     14 * for the "old code" (also known as "madwifi-old"): 
     15{{{ 
     16svn checkout http://svn.madwifi.org/branches/madwifi-old madwifi-old 
     17}}} 
    1218 
    13 This will update your sources to the bleeding-edge version
     19If you're behind a proxy, then make sure Subversion [http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#proxy knows about it]
    1420 
    15 * Don't forget to read the svn manual page! 
     21The above commands store the source in a subdirectory called either ''madwifi-ng'' or ''madwifi-old''. To update to the current version of the source at a later time you just need to change to that subdirectory and type: 
    1622 
    17 == Downloading the latest Snapshots == 
     23{{{ 
     24svn update 
     25}}} 
    1826 
    19 If you can't handle SVN, or just don't have a net connection, you could download madwifi using HTTP (on another machine, if needs be). Tarballs for the new code can be found at [http://snapshots.madwifi.org]. The old code can be found at [http://madwifi.otaku42.de] (including the latest experimental drivers - still gets updated). 
     27Then recompile and install the result.

     29For further information on how to work with Subversion refer to the relevant manpages and the excellent [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ Subversion book].
